Say it with Flowers

Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some more inspiration using another of their beautiful Mega Doilies on my card that measures approximately 8 x 8 inches square.

The Italian Flourish Doily comes in 3 sizes and on this card I have used 2 of them on my layers. Both were cut out in white cardstock and some Distress ink added to the edges. I like to not put glue on the edges of my Doilies, only adding some to the centre. I find this helps to put a little movement into the design and softens the look.

My Daisies have 4 layers on them with a little Distress ink and a Pearl added into the centres. You will notice that two of the layers of petals are folding down the way and two folding up the way, this helps give stability to the flowers.

Happy Birthday was stamped with Archival ink and mounted onto a little cheesecloth and foam strips for extra dimension.

Finishing off with Pearl Strands, Accents of Pearls on my flourishes and a pretty double layered Butterfly.

Craft Consortium's MDF Trinket Box

Hi everyone, today my Design Team project for Craft Consortium uses lots of their products including this super box from the new range of MDF which is great for storage or to display trinkets and artwork in.

I started by adding a generous layer of Mod Podge onto my MDF and added a section from the sheet of Decoupage Paper on top, continuing until all covered. Once dry I sanded all the edges. Next I started to sand over my paper with a circular motion, this started to reveal the ripples from the thick glue layer and gave a weathered look to my box. Finishing with a top coat layer of glue to give a nice finish.

Now I will just let you enjoy all the photos of my box.

Butterfly Wishes - Cherish The Memory

Hi everyone, for my Design Team post at Cherish The Memory I am using the gorgeous Lemoncraft Papers they are now stocking along with a super range of their embellishments and ephemera which I will be giving inspiration with on my cards and projects over the coming months.

On this card I started by tattering strips of paper and inked them at the edges, mounting onto another tattered layer.

I layered on a Cheery Lynn Doily and a fussy cut Doily from the Ephemera Sheet which also included the watch, Butterflies and sweet little girl.

This was all mounted onto my tattered bill from the Ephemera pack, finishing off with a Shabby Ribbon and pretty Die cut flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and do checkout Cherish The Memory Etsy Shop to see their full range of Lemoncraft products.

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a vintage Valentines card that could easily be adapted as a Mother’s Day or Birthday card using these Dies.

I tattered a few layers and added some lace onto my torn layer.

Both my Heart Frame and Heart Pop-up have shadow layers on them.

My Cupid is made from a Katy Sue Mould and Paper Clay.

My flowers were cut from white cardstock and shaded with Distress Inks adding Pearls into the centres. 

Finishing my card with a White Dove and some Heart Pearls. My XO's and Arrow were shaded with Pro Marker metallic pens.
